I have been a classroom teacher for 18 years. During this time I have taught Special Education, 1st grade, and 2nd grade.
My special education experience has helped me develop well-rounded lessons. I put effort into making most of my products differentiated. I understand that each classroom is filled with different levels of learners.
Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I love that I have the opportunity to share my lessons with other teachers. Elementary Island was born when I saw teachers stressing over the difficulties of reaching every child. I enjoy helping teachers meet the needs of all their learners because that's definitely close to my heart!
